Historic Cemetery, Homes and Spring

Downtown Holly Springs includes homes with histories. Follow a short public trail that begins near the Leslie-Alford-Mims house, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, to a freshwater spring once used to supply the home with water. The Holly Springs Cemetery holds the graves of some of the town's founding families. 


Coworking Station

Years ago, the Town of Holly Springs renovated one of the oldest buildings in town. Over the years, the building was a dress shop, a drug store, an auto parts store and the town's police station. It's now being used as collaborative workspace with desk space, private offices and meeting rooms for rent.
